Gotta Shake This Feeling

Saturday, April 14, 2012

I'm still feeling restless and like I need something new in my life. It's been like this for a couple weeks now and is starting to drive me crazy. I've been kinda half looking for some kind of volunteer work to do, but haven't come up with a whole lot of choices. What I have found, I haven't called and acted on yet. It almost makes me feel like I have spring fever.

Since I am getting tired of this feeling, it's time to get serious. Set some new goals for myself. Find some new things to do. Shake up my schedule. Get out of this rut I'm in. If I could just get that little extra bit of ambition to do it...

    I went and served dinner at the soup kitchen for EAster, and I had forgotten how good that can make you feel. I had done this at another soup kitchen when I worked at the university years ago, I volunteered one day a week for a whole year.... Really makes you appreciate what you have when you see those less fortunate.... emoticon

Quotes Have me Thinking

Thursday, April 12, 2012

A few quotes that I have read yesterday and today on SP made me sit and think. They oft times have a way of doing that.

The one that got me thinking the most was one from Coach Tanya: "What is your level of commitment? Is it a level helping you reach your goal?"

I've been spending more time working on my job skills lately. I've been looking for some volunteer work to do lately. But I don't think that my level of commitment on these issues is helping me reach my goals. I still don't feel confident in some of my skills and I haven't decided on what place to volunteer. It's time to put a little more effort into each of these areas to achieve what I want to achieve. Thanks, Tanya, for getting me to think and react.

    I think my level of commitment has been sidetracked an awful lot along the way these past 2 years... not much success scale-wise and even though I had more compliments on my recent trip home with everyone saying I had lost weight and looked so good, but I guess that depends on when they seen me last whether I was in my up 20 lbs. or down 20 lbs phase... only problem it is always the same 20 lbs, it never goes any where permanently... I would like to say I am going to really get commited, but with my unemployment running out this month, I think watching my diet is once again going to take a back seat.. UGH!

Gotta Do Something

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

I'm still feeling restless and bored. I know I wanted to find something to do, but I haven't researched anything yet. I'm feeling a little disappointed in myself for not doing it yet. Today will be the day! I don't like this feeling. I don't like feeling like I have nothing to do, nothing to look forward to. Is it maybe a case of spring fever?

    Patty,
you've been through so much with promised jobs and then ending and starting another one and I think you need to realize how much stress all these things cause.. You;'re always so busy and working so hard, you need to learn to relax and I understand how hard that can be, but what do you like to do to relax? I wouldn't advise Bingo... where I went tonite, too much stress and it costs too much money if you don't win. emoticon

    I like to take a walk or move too when I feel bored or a little depressed. I used to eat to feel better... but these days are over!

I wish you a nice day with some discoveries!

Easter

Monday, April 09, 2012

I had a really great, relaxing Easter this year. Now I'm ready for the week and to start of some of the goals that I have set for myself. I'm determined to find something to volunteer at. I'm going to research this today and tomorrow to determine what exactly I want to do. I have volunteered in the past and have always enjoyed it and got a lot out of it. It's time to do it again. I'm still working on job skills a little each day and feel that I've made some improvement. And, of course, this goes hand in hand with my job search. My Avon orders have grown in the last couple months and I want to keep improving on this. It's a challenge at times, but I've learned a lot and met a lot of good people. Just trying to keep improving myself.

    What Job skills are you working at, if I may ask? I have never done regular volunteering. Until now, I did one day actions only. I am afraid it would suck up my energy but since I have not tried it, I might be completely wrong... tell us about it if you find a place to volunteer, maybe I can learn from it and find a place for myself too!
Have a good week!

Restless

Saturday, April 07, 2012

I've been feeling a little restless lately. I'm looking for something different to do but I'm not sure what I'm looking for. This was on my mind all morning and then the simple answer finally dawned on me. It's just that: I'm looking for something different to do. So, it's time to explore my options: check into some volunteering, check out the local college course catalog that I just got yesterday, decide on doing something. I'm going to spend some time this morning doing just that. By Monday, I will have some plan in place.
